Dwelling on the Word of God: True Peace in a Loving Saviour (Tuesday 20th May 2014)

 
From today’s Gospel (John 14:27-31):
 
‘Jesus said to his disciples:
 
‘Peace I bequeath to you, my own peace I give you,
a peace the world cannot give,
this is my gift to you.
Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.’’
 
 
What is peace?  Is it a harmonious world where everyone gets along?  Is it a quiet, still world where there is no noise?  Are these examples of the kind of peace Jesus is talking about?  Perhaps they are or perhaps they are not.  Jesus knows what we need and he knows what true peace is.  It is true peace that Jesus wants for all of us and it is he who can give us the gift of true peace.  The world, no matter how hard it tries, can never give us the true peace of Christ.
 
So Jesus tells us once again that we should not be afraid, that he has given us the gift of true peace so that we need never be afraid of anything.  That gift of true peace has already been received in Baptism but sometimes we forget about it and worry about things and let fear creep into our hearts and minds.  Today Jesus reminds us that this fear should never be allowed to take over; rather, it is his peace that should always be at the forefront of our minds so that in his peace we shall be close to him and experience the joy of a loving Saviour who is always by our side and who would die over and over again for each one of us.

There are some interesting closing dates on this article however I don't know if I see all of them center to heart. There's some validity but I'll take hold opinion till I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we would like more! Added to FeedBurner as nicely
